Global Experience Week

Global Opportunities

As part of studying in an international and diverse class, you will be encouraged to adopt a global perspective. Today’s markets are no longer localised, competition is on a global scale and our teaching reflects this.

The Global Experience Week is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the business environment of another country. Together with the rest of your class you will visit local and global companies, and meet Business School alumni based in that country.  The Global Experience Week is an intensive exploration of a country’s business practices and challenges using company visits to learn through practical case studies.

The Weekend MBA has people from all over the world in the class from all sorts of industries and roles such as engineers, finance, communications, products, entrepreneurs and that’s the great thing about the course; it’s got a real mix of people.

2018 Global Experience Week in Cambodia and Vietnam

This year, the cohort went to Southeast Asia for their Global Experience Week, visiting Cambodia and Vietnam.

The 75 students met local investors, visited the factory of a fashion manufacturing company, spoke with entrepreneurs from the region, and learnt more about running a social enterprise like a business at a Cambodian charity.

2017 Global Experience Week in South Africa

In 2017, the Weekend MBA class went to Cape Town in South Africa.

They visited local companies and organisations and heard from guest speakers, providing them with the opportunity to get a unique insight into the country’s economic and political situation, its history and the challenges and opportunities it currently faces.
